CrashMania will be a heat style demolition derby. After successfully passing tech inspection, each driver will draw a heat number and park in the assigned section of the arena for that heat. Cars may not be worked on, or altered by anyone and not driven by anyone but the driver after passing tech inspection until released to line up for a heat.
There will be 3 qualifying heats. If at any time after 3 minutes into a heat, the officials deem there is a clear mad dog (most aggressive/entertaining driver) the heat will be stopped and that driver will automatically advance to the main event. Heat will then proceed until only 2 cars remain and those 2 will also advance. Cars must make aggressive contact under their own power at least once every 60 seconds during a qualifying heat. If more than 30 cars are entered, 1 extra qualifier will be added from each heat and 1 extra qualifying heat will be added.
There will be one 2nd Chance Grudge Match. The Grudge Match will consist of any car that did not advance through their heat. Top 2 and Mad Dog may advance from the Grudge Match to the Main Event. Cars must make aggressive contact under their own power at least once every 90 seconds during a Grudge Match.
